"Quiet neighborhood between two large lakes"
Situated between Lake Union to the west and Lake Washington to the east, the neighborhoods in this area are generally quiet and reserved. Offering three huge parks; Interlaken, Volunteer and Washington Park Arboretum; residents with kids couldn't ask for a greener, more recreational area to raise a family. The Broadmoor Golf Club offers great recreation for adults, too. Like many of the streets in this area, East Newton Street consists of a leg between I-5 and Interlaken Park, then picks up again along the northeast corner of the park. Neighborhoods are quiet and green, though commuters may suffer some traffic congestion during morning and afternoon rush hours. A non-rush-hour trip to downtown is usually less than 10 minutes. Surrounding streets offer some great out-of-the-way pubs, restaurants and shops. Housing prices can get expensive, but the recent crisis has brought many down to almost-affordable levels.
